Last year for the first time the Tour de Machakos visited Makueni County and in particular Mbooni hills. These hills form part of the big mountain ranges just south of Machakos. This stage is one of the longest and most certainly the one with the most climbing. As such its an endurance stage. The fact that there is a 600 metre climb at the halfway mark means all riders have to judge their efforts at the beginning if they are to maximize their chances of winning this stage. Watch out for breaks on this climbs as the riders battle to open up a big enough lead to win the stage and maybe the entire Tour. If none of the breaks survive then spectators will be rewarded with some spectacular sprint action at the finish line in Masii town! It must be remembered that even the stage winners have to complete the entire tour in order to claim their winnings. As such this long stage can have a significant impact on the podium standings for any other day of the tour
